Serves: about 2-3 servings
Ingredients
Cashew "Cream"
  • 1 cup cashews, unsalted
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 tbsp pumpkin puree (more or less, depending on how much you like pumpkin)
  • ½ tsp pumpkin spice
Cocoa
  • 3 cups milk (I used non-dairy)
  • 2-3 tbsp cocoa
  • 2 tbsp honey (agave or regular sugar works fine)
  • ⅓ cup cashew cream
Instructions
  1. In a high-speed blender, add cashews, water, pumpkin puree, and pumpkin spice. Blend for about 30 seconds, or until completely smooth.
  2. Meanwhile, heat milk over medium heat in a small saucepan. Once the milk has just reached a low simmer, add cocoa and honey. Whisk until there are no lumps of cocoa left and the mixture is completely uniform.
  3. Pour the cocoa into the same blender, along with the ⅓ cup of cashew cream. Blend for a few seconds until the cashew mixture "separates" to the top (that's a good thing!). Serve in a mug and enjoy!
